Sony will bring a live demo on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show with actor Channing Tatum and editor-in-chief of the Verge, Joshua Topolsky.
As if people didn't have enough reasons to want a PS4 already. Project Morpheus getting demoed on TV should spark even more consumer interest
Haven't seen it in action yet, looking forward to hopefully seeing Fallon fall over something because he can't see! Hopefully they reveal the price too
Very smart decision by Sony, here's why: Channing Tatum will be promoting his movie "22 jump street" on Jimmy Fallon's show. The movie is made by Sony and so is Morpheus. They're hitting two birds with one stone, promoting both the movie and the VR headset.
Meanwhile at Microsoft. "Wait till they see this!! 'XBOX ON'!"
It will be cool to see what he thinks about it. I think it sounds like it would be fun.
I'm not sure it's going to do Morpheus any good: http://a.pomf.se/bmhiro.gif
Sony is rocking their revenues to get Morphieus on the TV :)
will watch.. Update on my ps4 fund saving Up to $175 dollars. Hopefully by September i'll have the money to finally get the ps4 which will be place next to my ps2 slim and slim ps3 yea
Hmm, hard to show off a product like Morpheus, like trying to show off a 3D Tv screen or a sub-hd screen to people that don't have a Tv like that. Seeing is believing.
Nah, it will be about Fallon's reaction to the thing... people get excited when they see others show enthusiasm. Plus, Fallon has a lot of video game street cred with the mainstream... and it is now the Tonight Show, not a late show... A lot more viewers than Fallon used to have. Big opportunity for Sony.
Precisely. Fallons reaction to the PS Camera was hilarious and the thing has 7 million views and all he was doing was playing with a bunch of little robots.
why him... he's not that funny. haha
Oculus? Better. Jimmy Fallon is funny.
I thought they banned people who constantly trolled or contributed nothing to conversations. Isn't that why Maria isn't allowed to comment? I wonder how this will go. This will be a harder product to present to a viewing audience. I suppose they could show the contents of what he's seeing or something, but the impact will be considerably dulled. Even so, it's a great move for Sony. Can't see how some other company could be said to have all the momentum going into E3 when Sony is doing things like this.
Come on lets not start this, they are both great products and recognition of any kind is good for VR as a whole.
Playstation setting the standard since 1994. Often imitated, never duplicated. Can't wait to see this.
Well said sir
Thank you sir! Jimmy Fallon is gonna love that thing. Now I CANNOT fall asleep. I get up way early for work so I'm a little tired.
I mean you cant underestimate oculus, they are playing a big part in 'setting' the standard of VR as well.
either way putting it on a show like this brings lots of exposure to Vr as an industry. if it helps Sony, it helps Oculus/Facebook as well.
Ok, gotta see this
Great move, and Channing Tatum is so hot.
Got my dvr set to record, even though the video is going to be all over the internet tomorrow :)
i also decided to record it...The videos will be all over the internet like you said but wont be the same thing...I find when i catch up on the tonight show on YouTube i miss half the show...
This is good promotion for Morpheus. All it needs at E3 is a price.
A release date would be nice also but I won't hold my breath.
Will it be as memorable as his play of Killzone SF? (that was classic) Gateway MT6706 2008
Just saw it on the Tonight Show. I don't think Fallen really demonstrated it well. It could have been done better. He kinda went wild on it punching the armor dummy repeatedly while the guy from the Verge was trying to get him to orient his screen and focus on what was going on. Didn't help Fallon was kind of shouting with excitement while the guy was trying to explain the features of the product, 1080p etc. The Eye camera demonstration was better. Tatum had a better display in that you could at least orient with is scene a bit. The, they ran out of time. It was basically like an adult showing two eager kids how to play a game. lol I really wanted the demonstration to be better. The crowd seemed to like it which was good.
Yeah I saw it and it seemed like a pretty lame presentation. As a developer I can see the potential. As a gamer, who understands what's going on, it was pretty cool imagining seeing what they were in VR. But to the layman, I couldn't imagine this would bring about a lot of excitement. The whole thing was way too short. Explanations should have been given then shown the demo when they were both ready. Unfortunately, it's really hard to express how immersive VR can be without someone actually using the tech. If that dragon came flying at you while wearing the headset, it would have a much different experience than just seeing the 2D representation of it. Sadly, this demo wasn't terribly impressive if you're looking for something amazing. The original Move demo was better IMO. And yeah, Fallon could have shut up a bit. Most of the time he was just trying to get it to work. On a side note, that camera before it was pretty cool.:)
Yeah! That camera was amazing! I laughed when Fallon said, "$15.99?!" And Joshua laughed and replied, "$1599."
Do I have to watch Fallon though? :/
